Our public schools are designed to teach all children in a similar way. But kids with dyslexia, ADHD and other challenges need a more tailored education. We’ll talk this hour about how we can better teach children with special needs with David Flink, who writes about the topic in Thinking Differently: An Inspiring Guide for Parents of Children with Learning Disabilities.
Wonderful conversation with David Flink today, Krys. You did a great job focusing on the strengths of people with learning and attention issues as well as discusssing their struggles at work and school. David is an absolute ambassador for the Think Different community and I am so thankful for what he and his team at Eye to Eye are doing to elevate the conversation about learning differences. My kids (who have dyslexia and ADHD) had the opportunity to hang out with a few of the Eye to Eye student mentors this summer, and we were all blown away by their ability to use storytelling to advocate for themselves and teach advocacy to others. Thanks again for highlighting this topic today, KERA!
